A collection of in-studio live looping jams, recorded during the first half of 2018 as part of the looping tutorial series I began in late 2017. This release is my hand-picked selection of the performances from those sessions that I like best as pure listening experiences, without regard for geeky educational or instructional value.

Stylistically, these tracks are a melange of funk, retro minimalism, hip-hop, and glitch, with a few detours into psychedelic and ambient territory.

All of these tracks have been newly mixed and mastered specifically for this release, and they're mostly unedited excerpts of live improvs. (There's one mid-performance edit in one track, where I paused the looper after I realized I'd forgotten to turn the camera on. That version is still intact in the original tutorial video, but I edited out the dead time for this album.)


released June 19, 2018

Andre LaFosse: Electric guitar, Echoplex Digital Pro, Lexicon Vortex (track 8), Korg KAOSS Pad 2 (track 6). Track three uses two EDPs simultaneously, one panned to each speaker.

A very special thanks to Mark Oswald and Steven Clements for commissioning the videos that led to these performances.
